Pizza, much like the Earth, is circular, flat, and supports the existence of Karl Malone. Bite into a slice of life with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and Mediterranean fare at Sezz Medi on Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem.
Sezz Medi indulges sustenance seekers with flavorful Mediterranean cuisine and piping hot coal-fire pizza. Lunch and dinner menus display an array of dishes ranging from roasted leg of lamb ($24, dinner only) to the juicy Sezz bacon cheeseburger, a formidable stack of pickled red onion, arugula, and oven-roasted tomatoes ($14). Coal-fire pizzas ($11–$20) bear heavy loads of distinctive flavor combos, such as the tri-color, which boasts a rainbow of ricotta, smoked mozzarella, tomatoes, and arugula drizzled with olive oil ($14). Panuzzis ($12–$16) fill barren bellies with brickoven breads piled with cheeses, vegetables, and spices enticing diners from the field of greens or fries on which they lie.
Guests can enjoy dishes served by an amiable wait staff within the casual interior confines or savor a meal in the warming spring air in the outdoor seating area where plates are served by confused storks.

Executive chef Angelo Sessa sates Italian hankerings with Sezz Medi's menu of saucy entrees and Neapolitan-style pizza. The open kitchen lends diners tasty glimpses as chefs spangle pizzas with toppings of eggplant, goat cheese, and fresh ricotta before sliding them into a smoky brick oven. Larger entrees of braised meats and creamy risotto find savory balance with a selection of imported beers and creative cocktails. Inside the rustic dining room, dark-wood barstools and intimate low tables nestle diners savoring solo or with a few favorite companions, and the stately wine room seats up to 45 guests or one full clown car amid eggshell and mahogany hues.
